ATM's in the country

I have seen that ATM's have spread to about everywhere now, country and city. Last month when I was in northern VT, about as far as you can get from a city, there was an ATM in a little general store. There're everywhere ! I saw this comparison of the way men use ATM's versus the way wimmen use them. Thought you might like it !

BTW, ever watch the way men and wimmen behave at a cash register check out ? The guy will have the cash in his hand, either the right amount or close to it. The woman will wait until her sale is rung up, put her purse on the counter, open it, try to find her wallet amongst all the junk, take it out, count out the bills while they're still in the wallet (not easy to do), count out the change while it's still in the coin pocket (just as hard), determine that she hasn't enough money, then she'll open the credit card section of the wallet and flip thru several cards until she finds the right card. Don't even ask what happens if the cashier doesn't pass her a pen to sign the receipt !!

Anyhow here's the difference between men and wimmen at the ATM:


1. Pull up to ATM
2. Insert card
2a. car still in gear
3. Enter PIN number and account
4. Take cash, card and receipt
5. drive away while shovin' all in shirt pocket
